My son asked his high school principal for a letter of recommendation. What he received was the best letter of reference I have ever seen.
I must brag a bit. I must.
OK, I am proud of all of my boys, but can I just take a moment to brag on Conner? Most of you know that Devin and Conner went through an emotionally exhausting experience in March. For three weeks, they basically lived in the hospital at their father’s bedside during the final days of his […]
Happy Veteran’s Day to my favorite Bad-Ass. Semper Fi.
This is my dad. He spent 22 years in the Marine Corps, but as I understand it, he’ll always be a Marine. He retired as an E9 Master Gunnery Sargent. I guess that’s as high as you can go as an enlisted officer. (He’s a really big deal.) We went to a Marine Corps Ball one […]
If my son is 19, what does that make me…?
My eldest turned 19 yesterday. Where does the time go? I started this blog to keep track of the things the kids do. Grant has provided the majority of the blogging material, but I fondly looked over some of my favorite “Devin” posts yesterday… As moms we recognize the milestones like first words and first […]
Gratuitous bragging about the men in my life.
My dad taught me how to use power tools and to stand up for what I believe in. He taught me that things are often black and white and there is very little room for gray areas when it comes to strength of character. He gave me my first beer. He’s a fabulous dad to […]
It’s my blog and I’ll post all the graduation pictures I want to.
My internet was down for two days… It allowed me to ponder the fact that I have a child who is now a high school graduate. Where does the time go? Isn’t he handsome!!!??? It was a big class (786 students) most of whom seemed to be award winning, honor roll-making, superb young adults. Amazing. […]
Lucky Number 7
How did this happen?How is it that my baby is 7 years old!? He’s always been a good eater… He’s always been a total crack-up… Links to a few of my very favorite Grant-isms: On why we celebrate Christmas… On the proper way to serve a meal…On poor choices… On pregnancy… On songwriting… On pet […]
Sweets from my sweet.
Like most moms, my refrigerator has become a trophy wall…. an art gallery…. a scrapbook…. a day planner & calendar…. etc, etc. In other words, it is usually a chaotic, jumbled mess. So when Grant came to me and said, I have a present for you…. it is on the refrigerator, I stood looking at […]
That’s right. My Labor Day Post. Better late than never.
OK, I had to post about Labor Day weekend because I am so proud of my mom and dad. They were the Grand Marshals for the local fair and Labor Day parade. They are tireless volunteers for their city. I can’t think of anyone more deserving. We went out on Saturday to the fair. It […]
